failure!

Well I did not finish the Olympic sweater on time. In fact I still haven’t finished it. I actually put it down for now. I can’t decide whether or not I even like it now. The color is great but the shortrows and the shaping really kind of stand out, too much I think. We’ll see. And it’s so boring. Just KKKKKKKKKKK a bazillion times.

So before the Olympics even ended I started a new pair of socks for M in Trekking XXL. It’s WAY overspun to the point that every round or two I have to detangle and unspin it. What the hell. Unfortunately this is not helping the ribbing which is still leaning to one side. Socks are not supposed to look like \\\\\\\\\\\\\\. I guess I will be ripping that out too, and maybe rewinding the ball although I don’t know what good that will do.

Maybe it is time to knit more baby shoes and sweaters (where is that baby anyway? she sure is taking her sweet time) as they are instant gratification items.

That’s why I started knitting the socks though.

Maybe a hat for me and a hat for the babe. Hmmm.
